Looking Forward

Recently I find myself keeping track of days. As each day of August ends, we come closer. And closer. To...drum roll please.... Fall!!!! Yay!!!! I LOVE fall. It is by far my favorite time of year. I cannot wait. In fact I'm trying to will fall here early by doing fallish type things.

I bought nail polish from the Essie Fall Collection the other day. And I had a cup of apple cider. And I brought out my fall body wash, pumpkin spice. In my mind, Sept 1st is fall time. Summer decorations come down, and fall decorations go up.

Unfortunately the weather does not seem to agree with me. Usually September is our highest electric bill, because usually it's 100000 degrees outside. *sigh*. I'm so over summer it's not even funny.

I remember as a kid loving summer. But then I grew up and reality hit. All summer means now is having to get in a 110 degree car after school/work. And lots of sweating, ick. And a super high electric bill. I admire adults who love summer. I'm not one of them.

But fall is just as good as it always was. It means cool weather, Holidays on the horizon, pumpkin pie, warm drinks, pretty colored leaves (ok not here, but in other places). To say I'm looking forward to fall is an understatement. I'm ready to make a paper chain and take of a link for each day until it gets here!

If you came up here now you could already see the fall colors! It's crazy how colorful our mountains are getting but I love it! I'm looking forward to fall and cooler weather. I'm over summer too and ours hasn't been nearly as hot as yours which seems odd to me. Usually we can get a pretty hot summer. But we've had plenty of days in the high 90s so yeah... I'm done!
